Sometime during the series with Philly 2 years ago, Pierre dedicated a moment of his in-game blabbering to talk about Fayne. He was set to be a RFA at season's end, and Pierre had mentioned that he had caught the attention, and impresseed, of a lot of scouts across the league.
If the Devils can't find a place for him (which, please, I hope they do) - hopefully we do get a nice return for him.
I got into a conversation with a scout not too long and when he found out I was a Devils fan, Fayne is one of the first players he brought up. He definitely has a lot of eyes on him - and it's another contract year.
Really hope they make room for him. Can't imagine Lou wants to see a Providence guy get lost in the fold.
Except for the fact Zid actually contributes offensively. I like Fayne and rather him than Volch but I rather have Lars, Zid, and Greene over him. But it's not like it is a great loss if we lose him.
Zidlicky is atrocious defensively.
I personally am not fond of him offensively either. He never hits the net on slap shots, often times makes boneheaded plays, if he tries to protect the puck with one hand on his stick and then throw it to the net softly one more time I might break my TV. He has some talent, but I'd personally rather have Gelinas here who probably brings more offensively to the table considering his shot, and watch him make rookie mistakes than Zidlicky.
In my opinion, Greene should just be given more freedom. He can contribute offensively but unlike Zidlicky he is very smart about it. He knows when and when not to take risks.
